Famous quotes containing the word irish:

    But Irish had an old soul, you might say. He was a man with a great future behind him, already.
    Angela Carter (1940–1992)

    I was the rector’s son, born to the anglican order,
    Banned for ever from the candles of the Irish poor;
    The Chichesters knelt in marble at the end of a transept
    With ruffs about their necks, their portion sure.
    Louis MacNeice (1907–1963)

    The Irish are a fair people; they never speak well of one another.
    Samuel Johnson (1709–1784)
